The very good looking 2018 Nissan Ellure has been spotted. The new vehicle exemplifies some of the best elements of a sedan and brings it forth for the people to enjoy. The new project which Nissan is embarking upon is a futuristic looking sedan model which will be powered by a hybrid powertrain. If you wish for the future to be know, then this is the model for you.
The designers had a few things in mind when they made the Ellure. They wanted to make it attractive iand appealing in a specific way which would combine the futuristic, modern feel to it with luxury elements of contemporary cars. The inside matches the outside well, but it actually takes it up a notch and brings us more interesting elements which are rare to find in other vehicles on the market. Finally, the hybrid powertrain is there to satisfy the necessary fuel consumption which would be appropriate for an economical car.
The new 2018 Nissan Ellure concept has appeared quite recently and we are lucky that we have spotted this car so early. In fact we are certain that it will reach production quite fast and start its sales. For now the release date is still a bit away and the pictures that were released were the concept car. So our review will help with the currently available stats which can provide help for the interested parties.
When is the 2018 Nissan Ellure Expected to Debut?
The prospect of getting the 2018 Nissan Ellure finally is a much desired one. But it will take some time for the car to crossover from the concept stage, in which it is now, to the production one, which we are all eagerly expecting. The model will probably make strides in a year or so when we can expect the real release date of the production car.
What is the Price of the Car?
Unfortunately, the price of the 2018 Nissan Ellure has not been stated so far. The appealing look, or rather alluring as the name references to, is its prime incentive so the price is not going to be so cheap. We can hope for a starting one of around 50,000 dollars but it will certainly rise higher than that depending on the amenities and the market value.
The Exterior of the Car
The biggest asset of the 2018 Nissan Ellure is its exterior. It manages to combine a breathtaking look with modern and futuristic cues that come all together. This concept is probably the best kind of a design that Nissan has managed to make recently and we see it as the model with the best prospect for the future. We just hope that they manage to retain most of the car once they get to the production part as it would be quite interesting to see what the car will have instore.
The car sports a sophisticated grille in the front and it combines with brushed edges for the exterior of the Ellure. This will also account for improved aerodynamics which improve the vehicle’s drivability and balance. It rides on some 20-inch wheels which have 5-spokes and it uses tires with low rolling resistance for better maneuvering. The car has a glass panel roof, which is what sets it apart from other sedans in the market and also adds LED technology to the lighting. All in all, it is a very cool design which could be used in various sort of occasions.
Inside of the 2018 Nissan Ellure
The interior of the 2018 Nissan Ellure is perhaps more out of this world than the outside is. The inside has very curious looking lines that you would not see in other cars. It looks very futuristic and is like a cockpit in a space shuttle of some sorts. The style will probably change once the production model is reached but the usefulness of the car will be kept as they are making this model to be suitable in all kinds of occasions and particularly for longer trips.
The layout of the dashboard is actually pretty simplistic, which is the advantage of the car. The dash features controls for navigation, audio controls and climate functions. The uniquely designed steering wheel is probably the most interesting part of the inside and jumps off profusely compared to the other parts. We are probably going to get a more production-friendly version once this car is made but we actually feel really sorry to see this one go.
The unique part of the 2018 Nissan Ellure is the engine. This one might even be transferred rom the concept version and they may decide to keep it for the final product when they finally make it. The car has a gasoline part which is the supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and it combines it with a 25 kW electric motor. For better use it will be equipped with an advanced lithium-ion battery. The total amount of output the engines can make amounts to 273 horsepower. The transmission choice is the Xtronic CVT one for better shifting.
0-60 mph and Top Speed
The current specs for the 2018 Nissan Ellure is still not given, but we will probably get those once the production date is established. For now we expect it to be at least as competitive as other models in the market are. An acceleration time to 60 mph of around 8 to 9 seconds will be great but we are still not too certain about the top speed.
Fuel Economy of the 2018 Nissan Ellure
The same thing goes for the 2018 Nissan Ellure and the fuel economy of the car. It will probably take a while until the car receives its rates and it will certainly cross towards the production date. The car uses Pure Drive badging and as such manages to attain better and much more suitable specs when it comes to fuel consumption. We view this solution as the best way for Nissan to advance its new technology and break into the hybrid segment in spectacular fashion.
Dimensions and Size
The size of the 2018 Nissan Ellure is still unknown, as only the pictures have been released so far. As we are able to confirm base on that the model will have similar numbers as any mid-size sedan that we see in the market and that way will be an appropriately shaped car. More on the size will be revealed once other parts have been established.
Safety of the Car
The new 2018 Nissan Ellure concept has all the necessary safety features. These are going to be given more value once the production car is made. For now we know that a rearview camera is the standard part of the equipment and of course a full range of airbags as well. The model will probably slip in some newer and advanced pieces of technology so the update is complete that way.
There is no telling which rivals will the 2018 Nissan Ellure face in the future but it will not be easy for the rest of the hybrid batch to keep up with this one. If it does manage to show the prospect which it has now that the rivaling model will have a lot of work on their hands. Vehicles like Chevy Volt and other hybrid prospects may have more miles and a bigger reputation but the Ellure will present its own unique kind of features.
